Now A Trilogy In 4 Parts!
“Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Korg. I’m kind of like the leader in here. I’m made of rocks, as you can see, but don’t let that intimidate you. You don’t need to be afraid, unless you’re made of scissors! Just a little Rock, Paper, Scissors joke for you” – Korg.
Hiya! How ya doin’? Thought you’d be glad to see me!
Apologies for the extended absence from your WordPress Reader.
The first half of this month was spent writing this, that and the other. Tried writing a few round-ups of Bronze Age comics – they didn’t sing, didn’t fly, no matter how much frenetic fiddling went into them. Various other intriguing topics occupied my time and energy, but actually completing any of these Posts proved to be inexplicably challenging.
Two weeks ago, at the height of an unusually rare heatwave, yours truly took a few days off, hoping that my creative batteries would be recharged. Nevertheless, on setting down to write again, my “talent” still lay on a beach somewhere…
Perhaps something quick and easy -like a music Post – would suffice?
Determined to combat this lull in activity and produce something awesome again, decided to open up totally new reviews and discussions.
Another week later, and…
Ah well, quick and easy it is then, just in time to close this gruelling month. Anyway, it’s been ages since the last Fantastic Beats, right?
With over a million new Posts loaded on WordPress each day, the “experts” advise making your blog as distinctive as possible.
Well, where else during any weekend can you find a disco lovingly illustrated with some of my fave quotes from Thor: Ragnarok (a DVD that only recently made its way into my MCU Collection!) and Seinfeld gifs?!
Honestly, what are the chances of finding anything around here quite like Bradscribe?!
“I have been falling… for 30 minutes!” – Loki.
Give up blogging altogether…?
Ever-diminishing Stats, and no new “Followers” since the Obama administration sound like reasonable excuses to jack it all in.
However, Brad is NOT a quitter!
Besides, popularity is an alien concept to me. Heck, this is the kid who was so insignificant at school that the bullies never noticed him!
Apart from derelict blogposts, there is still a hefty number of unfinished novels and short stories lying around here. This site (when at the peak of my powers!) can help address this unwanted backlog – WordPress has, easily, provided the most conducive platform on which to churn out my own unique stuff.
Music, generally, is a good motivator/inspiration for my writing. And, every so often, a truly monumental stomper pops up that gets the ol’ noddle working.
Here is the One for this Volume:
“No, no, no. I don’t even like Hulk. He’s always like, grr… smash, smash, smash. I prefer you!” – Thor.
“The Lightning Field has collapsed, sir!”
What?! How can this be?”
“It’s no good, Captain – the outer perimeter has been breached! Our MB Space is diminishing at an exponential rate!”
“Scanners detect something massive and malevolent approaching at high velocity.”
“Titan’s moons!! What- what IS it?!”
“It- it’s the Swarm Intelligence…”
Thor: “I love what you’ve done with the place. Redecorated and everything.”
Hela: “It would seem our father’s solution to every problem was to cover it up.”
Thor: “Or cast it out. He told you you were worthy. He said the same thing to me.”
Hela: “You see, you never knew him, not at his best. Odin and I drowned entire civilizations in blood and tears. Where do you think all this gold came from…?”
It occurred to me that after all this time, one of my all-time fave pop vids has never appeared in my own blog.
Might as well rectify that right now.
Th DJ aka Norman Cook is a local boy – our paths have crossed twice in the village supermarket; but the chances of bumping into the legend that is Christopher Walken – in this case: Christopher Dancen 😉 – in said supermarket seem just as likely as ever completing my Review of... oh, forgotten the name of the bally thing, it’s been so long…
And to think that this beloved star of The Anderson Tapes and Annie Hall started off as a professional dancer.
Well, by Jiminy, didn’t we all…?
Thor: “If you knew where he was, why didn’t you call me?”
Dr. Stephen Strange: “I had to tell you. He did not want to be disturbed. Your father. He had chosen to remain in exile. And you don’t have a phone.”
Thor: “No, I don’t have a phone but you could have sent me an electronic letter. It’s called an e-mail.”
Dr. Stephen Strange: “Yeah. Do you have a computer?”
Thor: “No. What for?”
Another reason for me to keep on pressin’ on is the fact that only two months stand between us and the 5th Anniversary of Bradscribe.
Naturally, let’s make a big song and – hahaha! – dance about all this, with special features, lists and – oh yes – a party or three 😉
And if such a grand jamboree finally burns Brad out for good, then at least he’ll be going out on a high note!
“I just, I gotta say. I’m proud of you all. This revolution has been a huge success. Yay us! Pat, pat on the back. Pat on the back. Come on. No? Me, too. ‘Cause I’ve been a big part of it. Can’t have a revolution without somebody to overthrow! So, ah, you’re welcome. And, uh, it’s a tie” – Grandmaster.
So here we are: on the verge of pressing Publish for the first time since… too long, that’s for sure…
During the next few days, oh course, another Post – preferably one featuring some original work – will see the light of day(!) Hopefully, September will turn out to be more favourable month writewise for me.
For our closing foot-tapping selection, here is a classic beat that you might not have expected, but – as you will no doubt have noticed – is just typical of the zany material you have come to expect from this site.
And just what the blazes is goin on in that gif?!
Is that what a trouser press looks like…?
“Guys, we’re coming up on the Devil’s Anus!” – Bruce Banner.
